Dementia:The Island Journey Crowdfunding Trailer

  • Rianna Patterson

This feature film (60 mins) will focus on dementia, culture, and my personal journey in creating an impact in the lives of older people in the Caribbean with a focus on Dominica. I want to highlight aging and living well in a cultural context. I believe that media is a powerful tool that can have an effect on our beliefs and perspectives, one being mental health and ageism. I would like to highlight and celebrate the elderly, create a realistic as well as a positive approach to older people in the media. I will explore holistic treatments for Dementia and engage in traditional dances in a quest to understand the recipe for the meaning of quality of life.
